Menu Plan Monday -- Week of March 8

This week we are trying to use a lot of what we out of the pantry, if you will. I think it's a good challenge to do from time to time. Eating up what's close to going stale or out of date will save the money this week and also use up items that would go to waste and therefore lose us money. I challenge you to do the same this week! Since we are doing that, our menu might not look so exciting. And there are several meals that never got made since it was such a busy week...kind of makes for easy planning! Just keepin' it real! ; )

This week's menu plan:

Monday (March 8)
Breakfast: bagels, cream cheese, and homemade jam
Lunch: Cheese quesadillas, beans, sour cream, black olives, salsa
Dinner: Chicken Pot Pie, rolls

Tuesday (March 2)
Breakfast: cereal
Lunch: left over pot pie
Dinner: Not sure...nothing strikes me as of yet.

(March 3) -- this is our busy day so I use the crock pot for lunch and dinner
